Goal setting is an empowering process which puts you in the drivers seat to choose and achieve the career and life you truly want. The start of a new year is a perfect time to reflect on what you want out of your professional life over the next 12 months.†This will provide a blueprint†and a direction for you to aim at. Here are a few tips on goal setting.
You must remember†your goals and make them motivating enough that they inspire you to extend out of your comfort zone. Use the SMART technique; make sure your goals are specific, measurable, action-orientated, realistic and time-limited.
Break down your goal into bite sized chunks.† Concentrate on the journey to fulfilling your goals and what you will need to do to reach it. If you are looking to get a job in the mines you need to start†with your cover letter and resume. Without these working for you you will not get past this stage.
You should share your goals with your close friends and†famil. They will help you to stay on track and be a constant reminder of what you want to achieve.
You need to harness the power of thinking positively. You can do this by visualising your success. It is an extremely powerful tool. If you are losing motivation† make sure you do something to change this. You are in complete control of where you go in life and you need to†remind yourself of this everyday.
There is nothing more motivating than celebrating a milestone, it might be an improved resume or an interview. Even participating in a mining course is a†good example of a†goal. Remember setting small goals is a great way to take control of your life and ensure you are moving in the right direction.
